Abc's Top 5 Science Program 

ABC is searching for the next generation of research talent with applications now open for its Top 5 Media Residency Program.

The program aims to give a voice to the emerging minds in science and humanities. 

The ABC are looking for dynamic early career researchers with a flair and passion for communicating their work to a wider audience.  

The media residency scheme is open to emerging university scholars from across Australia.

About the Program 
The nationwide callout for Top 5 is bigger than ever with two intakes in 2018. Building on the success of the Science program (now in its fourth year in partnership with UNSW), the ABC is expanding Top 5 to the Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences. The new Humanities program is running in partnership with the University of Sydney.
Providing an in-house ideas incubator based at ABC RN, the program is designed to nurture the communication skills and media awareness of Australia’s most dynamic emerging thinkers to help them share their knowledge and expertise with content-hungry audiences seeking expert information and debate.
As ‘researchers in residence’, the Top 5 winners will spend two weeks at the ABC working alongside some of the country’s best journalists and broadcasters to train in the craft of radio and TV interviews, and develop content across ABC platforms.
The Top 5 Science program is supported by a high-profile line-up of ambassadors including UNSW Dean of Science Professor Emma Johnston.

Applications close Wednesday 9 May (Midnight AEST)
